When you came to visit me in Rhyl – i am not sure of the year – you suggested that we talk in a cafe – we went to Bar Blu, a bar, just next to the station where we had arranged to meet.
I was very emotional and extremely tearful and upset. You were the first Verona Father that I had talked to face to face about the sexual abuse that had happened to me at Mirfield.
You promised me – and the word “promised” is the word that I know you used – that the priest who abused me, not once, but on many occasions, would never be in a position where he would be around children again. ” From now on” you said, “he would only be working with the ill and infirmed in the Comboni house in Verona.”
Do you remember saying that John Clark?
